  1. The reason there are alot of posts about damaged genuine ones is that there are thousands of sets of them. Less replicas therefore less to be damaged. The roads are the problem, not the wheels. If there were any real issues they wouldn’t still be manufactured. The origin of genuine wheels is known , who manufactures replicas ?
  2. The one in the photo, ECP’s pagid pad option. Advice was sought on that issue And went with the advice given from someone who had fitted what i have.
  3. The manufacturers instructions were minimal . The Forum user was Shak who imho would know more than most. There were no instructions for the pads. So seeking further input from here, which has given me the answer i was hoping for.
  4. I have recently replaced brakes all round. Pagid Pads and Brembo discs. See Photo. All fitted up fine and fitted correctly. The wear on the front disc is my problem. See Photo . Both sides exactly the same. The pads are not touching the inner part of the disc yet... Is this normal or have i just got to wait and do more miles. I have done about 60 miles. I have bedded in like the disc manufacturer said. I have never had this issue before when i have done this before. Could the front pads be wrong , they fit ok . Could they be for a smaller sized disc ? I ask this as the box was split on delivery, could have been put in wrong box ? I haven’t taken off the wheels to take a look but the pads were exactly the same size as the old ones as i compared pads to old prior to fitting.
  5. No joy on mk5golfgti forum?
  6. NIP must be sent to the registered keeper within 14 days. Was your car not registered to you? An NIP will not be sent if over 14 days if you were the RK. They cannot proceed if this procedure is not complied with.
  7. Best just to buy Watches imho. Cars , unless really expensive are a Real risk.
  8. Drink Driving will never stop, all the policing of it makes zero difference imho (having been a Police Officer for 30yrs) . The only thing that will reduce it with any significant amount is prison on first offence and 20yr ban.

    Vcds - where buy?

    So Hex-Net Unlimited is the one to buy then? Future proof ? Are they ever going to get VCDS to work with Mac ? Means i have to buy a computer aswell 🙄
  10. Insurance is paid to cover your car. The Golf R is just a Golf. We are car enthusiasts on a forum, we care more about our cars , but we do worry too much. We have a R Line Polo we take to car parks. It will be in a car park for the next two weeks. I will not think about it once, but if it was damaged i would be just as angry as if it was the R. Money rectifies all damage, so anger doesn’t last long.
  11. F Pace....gives me the answer, they can see ahead over the top of you. Alot of higher seated drivers drive too close, vans , lorries, coaches, Range Rover etc. If someone is tailgating me i slow down and let them overtake, thats all they want to do. Rather that than being hit in the rear.
  12. So car-net is the title, but went off about Sat Nav. My unit shows the car-net icon and appears to have been used by the previous owner. So does it mean i have to register ,pay VW or can it be accessed ? This is the screen i get when trying to find access....
